2016 FJA Annual Convention



FJA's Annual Convention!

The BEST CLE + Networking + FJA Leaders = FJA Annual Convention. The FJA Event of the Year is wrapped up in one great package just for YOU at none other — The Breakers Palm Beach. Whether you are an attorney or a paralegal/legal assistant, the FJA Annual Convention is the place to be June 22-25.

FJA attorney members can register for individual seminars or choose the Justice Pass - two seminars plus all social events for a lower price. We also have a Social Pass available for those who want to skip the CLE and just be a “social butterfly.” Social events can be registered for individually as well.


Don't miss out on all the excitement at FJA's signature annual event!
Here are some highlights from the 2015 Annual Convention hosted at the Grand Floridian in Orlando:





General Hugh Shelton will speak at the Justice Luncheon on June 23, 2016.
General Hugh Shelton
, author of the recently released book Without Hesitation, was principal advisor to the President on
9-11. As America recognizes the 10th Anniversary of the terrorist attack, the military architect of America’s response carries you behind the scenes of events surrounding 9-11. His use of personal examples, which carry the audience inside the White House and National Security Council decision-making process, is captivating. He also addresses both current and imminent national security threats facing America.

FJA CLE Seminars are designed expressly for you - especially as you take steps in your career to be the best 
advocate for your client. Check out this year's Annual Convention program:
